Stanley Lombardo

Lombardo: Shakespeare, Chaucer, Beowulf – trying to read some of it in the original, in whatever way I could. The Romantics, especially Keats and Coleridge, but also Wordsworth. I memorized ‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,’ Fitzgerald’s Rubaiyat, The Waste Land.

Watch Stanley Lombardo read from his translation of the Iliad:
